Client Feedback

When my partner and I met Tim for our first consultation we were really unsure of what we were looking for in a photographer. Tim showed us some of his work and straight away he made us feel at ease. We couldn’t have been any happier with our decision. Tim was such a pleasure to work with and his work was outstanding. He captured every special moment beautifully on the day, and once our final package arrived I was stunned to find how beautifully they were presented. They looked so stunning in the box neither of us wanted to open them! But we did and every single print looked absolutely stunning. Tim did such a wonderful job at capturing our special day, and we cannot say thank you enough.

Thank you Tim and Silke for giving us so many wonderful prints to help us relive our special day with our friends and family.

Kind regards Will, Di and Natasha

Thanks Tim and Silke for all you help capturing our wedding day. We were so pleased with how our photos turned out and we are really rapt with the book. Tim was great to work with and made it so easy on the day. We liked it how Tim worked in the background and let us enjoy our day resulting in more natural looking photos which is what we were after. We would happily recommend Tim to others.

Thanks again,

Hi Tim and Silke,

 We received the photo’s on Thursday thanks so much. I just wanted to say how impressed we were with them and how well Tim did given the time frame and pending storm on the day! We loved the slide show – what a fantastic show and such a great momento to have. Thank you for your professionalism and for making that part of the day a breeze. You are great at what you do Tim! Thanks again and we will recommend you to all.

Bj and I are not the type that like to pose for photos, we always seem to make excuse to steer clear of the camera. In saying that we wanted the memories of our special day captured. Luck was definitely on our side when we found Tim. He made us feel at ease and captured the moments we never want to forget without feeling as though we were posing. Tim was professional, friendly and took excellent photos, especially with such horrible weather. We were very impressed at the speed in which Tim got our photos to us, and would recommended him to anyone looking for a photographer. The standard of his work is excellent.

Good morning Silke
So sorry for the delay in letting you know our framed wedding print arrived safely.
Rob and I absolutely love the photograph and the choice of white for the frame is great.
Many thanks for your advice about this.
Thanks again to Tim for all the photographs of our wedding. We are so happy with them. Your husband was very calm, friendly and professional throughout our wedding an and  captured some wonderful moments of our day.
Tim certainly went that extra mile when he gave me some “magic tape” to put on my shoulder so my dress stayed in place!
Thanks again.Kind regards

Thanks again

Dear Mr. Whitaker
The photos you took of Grant and Debbie’s wedding are wonderful! Our Nana Jeuene who loves a little flutter on the races is particularly impressed to know that there is a photo with a horse in it, so that’s one we’ll have to order!
Thank you for such a wonderful professional job – you made it seem all so easy and effortless.
Pauline Lowe

Hi Tim
First we want to say a huge thank you for the wonderful job you have done with our photos – they look amazing and the CD is just perfect.
We have had great feedback from everyone who has looked at them – even the comments of “we didn’t even know you had a photographer” Once again thanks so much – its really great to look back at the photos to remind us of our special day (because really the day went so fast it was hard to remember everything).

One of my best friends is getting married in Hawkes Bay early next year and I will make sure I pass your details onto her.
Many thanks – speak to you soon regarding the additional CD/DVD’s.
Kind regards

Cheers Tim,
Love the photos, and have had such great comments back… thanks so much

Thank you so very much for the most stunning coverage of our wedding day. Most of the time we hardly knew you were there and yet the pictures are so incredibly alive and capture the emotions of the day so beautifully. Our parents are also thrilled and have watched the fantastic photo dvd countless times.
Your flexibility, professionalism and speedy turn-around have impressed us all and we will be recommending you, just as you were recommended to us.
With much appreciation

Bridget Holland

Hi Tim
Thank you very much for such a fantastic set of photos and DVD slide show. You managed to capture all of the moments of the day, and we love what was produced. We thought the whole process of working with you was extremely professional, and you left no stone uncovered. On the day you ensured everything remained relaxed and were hardly visible through the whole day. We were also very impressed with the speedy delivery straight after the wedding
Thanks for everything
James and Genevieve

Good Morning!
We got our coffetable book and just love it! It is awesome and we have showed so many people already! We have also been recommending you to everyone we know! Thanks for all your work in capturing our special day we couldn’t be happier!
Thanks again
Alicia and James Russell

Hi Tim,
We just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so much for our wedding photos – they look amazing! My very excited Mum called us from NZ to tell us they were online, it was great to see them. We are so pleased with all of them and can’t wait to see the book when its ready. We had such a wonderful wedding day and we really think your photos have captured the happiness and excitement that we felt.
Thank you again and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
Emma and Shaun Harkness

Hi Silke,
I am so sorry I haven’t got back to you – have just started a new job so life is hectic. Anyway just wanted to say we are very pleased with our coffee table book and very happy also with all our photos.
Thank you to both you and Tim for your professional service and taking the time to followup on everything. It really makes a difference.
Of course we don’t even have to recommend you as everyone asks us first who took them and then goes on to rave about how many lovely photos we have.
Once again thank you so much.
Take care
Fiona, Colin and Mia.

Hi Silke and Tim,
Thank you so much for you wonderful skill and huge effort, we think the photos are fantastic, they really capture the mood of the day perfectly without any staged posing (well very little anyway).
Tim, many people commented on how discreet you were as a photographer and I would certainly recommend you to anyone.
Thanks again for everything.
